Moving Slowly and Lacking Motivation

Posted Jul 07 2010 5:24pm
Hello Everyone,

It must have been about 3:30 A.M. when I last glanced at the clock in the bedroom. I could not stop thinking about Jerry (my hubby). I called him before I retired to bed and he sounded horrible. Poor baby is having such a difficult time with his breathing.

I have been trying to complete my laundry chores for three days! I cannot get motivated to complete this chore. My washer and dryer are located in the garage:( I need to catch up on filing bills and medical receipts, no fun. I need to clean out my bedroom closet, not motivated. I need a good kick in the bottom!

I am slowly catching up on e-mails and reading my favorite blog sites. My eyes have been giving me lots of trouble and I know I need to make an eye appointment. I don't want to visit another doctor! I have been taking Jerry to his appointments and seem to be getting burned out. Do you ever have days like that? Today, I am dragging, dragging, dragging.

Do you ever feel drained out? I think I am experiencing that drained out feeling today. It is time to step back, take a deep breath, clear my mind, and get a jump start. Lets see, what is stopping me from moving forward? My darn body and fatigue! Pacing is not the problem.

Stress drags me down, so I need to go escape and unwind. A good long bath, meditation, and positive self=talk will get me back on track before it gets out of hands. I am in control of my thoughts and emotions and must work on keeping things in perspective. This time will pass, I will allow myself to relax, enjoy the day and people around me. After all, if I don't take care of myself, what good am I to Jerry? Time for a plan.

Here is my plan
1). Take a long hot bath, meditate and work on diminishing my anxiety
3). Eat healthy, complete some simple stretching exercises
4). Instead of reading, I think I will listen to some upbeat music that will get me moving, energized, and smiling. I am going to work on releasing some endorphins.
5). Catch up on television series with my son, Sean.
6). Get plenty of rest.

Wish me luck!

I hope and pray you are not experiencing fatigue, stress, anxiety, or pain.
